My child attended Timber Lane from Kindergarten through 6th grade. He had great teachers every year. The only way to improve this school is with more parent involvement. The students, teachers, and staff are excellent.

I absolutely love this school. All the teachers I've met including the principle care so much to see each child succeed. As a parent, the school makes you feel like you are part of the team and not an outsider. Special thanks to Ms. Torrence and Ms. McAdams for being such outstanding teachers!

Timber Lane is a very caring environment. The entire staff is very involved in the learning of all of the students. The teachers know all of the students in the building and ensure that each one reaches their potential.

Timber Lane Elementary has an amazing staff, who dedicate their time to ensuring all children have a great educational experience. Students not only have fun but their academic performance is improved. During that last few years the Gifted and Talented program was implemented because so many Timber Lane students were accepted into the program that they wanted to make sure the students could stay in the area to continue their academics. Timber Lane is culturally diverse, which enables the students to associate and learn from children from all over the world. We have an international night each year which brings the community together. My children love Timber Lane and as a parent I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
